XP1000 Suspension set ups!

What up UTV owners!
I apologize ahead of time, if I break any rules here! Just spreading the good word on advice from owners. Last post here was 4 years ago! I'm not a big Internet site type guy, I'm on Glamis dunes sometimes, and that's about it! To busy working and playing!
I'm "The Suspension Guy". I set up big off road dez and sand cars, but in the last few years, the UTV market has exploded and I have found myself working on these almost as much as big cars now days! I own a polaris xp900, and xp1000 that are used often to test and play.
I'm a King and Walker Evans dealer and I'm into making thier products work well for the racer or recreational user.
But of course, I work on all popular brand shocks!
I put all this stuff to the test! I drive it at the sand, the dez and the track, always trying to make it better! So, if its just cruising the dez, or racing around Glamis, it gets tuned to fit the the way you drive! I don't "copy" anyone's work! No need to! It's all my own!
I often have demo shocks for the xp1000 and 900, or you can come out and drive one of mine!
Sometimes you don't realize how much better your car can handle till you drive one with an optimum set up!
Hope to chat soon!
Thanks,
Ed

Xp1000, Front, Walker Evans, 2.5 Dual Rate spring needles ! These leave your stock 2.0 fronts in the dust! I have lots of hours of testing into these, and I valve them to be plush in the rough, while still having great bottom out resistance and way less fade as compared to the poor stock 2.0s

Re: XP1000 Suspension set ups!

These King IBP are the cream of the crop! 2.5 front and rear. Talk about a butter smooth ride! I valve these to be smoother in the beginning movement, and firmer on the ends! So just when you think they are to soft to get aggressive, they firm up when they should! These are truly confidence builders!

Re: XP1000 Suspension set ups!

You have internal valving control on both compression and rebound on the bipass portion of the shock. Two compression stacks, as well as two rebound valve stacks in each King IBP as well as the external adjuster.

Re: XP1000 Suspension set ups!

Every set up gets tested. Because one set up definitely does not fit all drivers! Lots of valving recipes are needed for all sorts of drivers for either the track, dez or sand, or a combination!

Re: XP1000 Suspension set ups!

And don't forget about the stock shocks! They can be revalved to work a ton better than the stock valving!
You get the most bang for your buck by valving the shock to work the way you want! The valving that comes stock was decided by Polaris management and engineers (not Walker Evans) to fit a wide wide range of driving and conditions. So it's far from the best it can be.
The magic is in the valving! You can spend a lot of money on just springs and other hardware, but that is only a portion of the pie and gets you only limited results! I have valving recipes that will work with just your stock springs to help keep the cost down and get real results!!
If you want to go that extra yard, then you can add springs, and crossovers to compliment your valving recipe! Just adding crossovers to the front stock 2.0 shock, and using the stock springs will make a huge handling difference! Body roll is drastically reduced and actually helps the rear stay planted and car run level with the revalved rear shocks.
All this can be done without spending a ton of cash! But don't get pulled into spending a ton of money on the front 2.0s, in my opinion, when for a little more, you can simply upgrade to the 2.5 walker Evans needles with all the good stuff, that I custom valve. Then your DONE! Revalve the rear, stock springs. Run it!!! And enjoy your machine that much more!!
